This is a product created by “Pallay”, an entrepreneurial and cultural project which seeks to recover the textile tradition of the Andes and spread knowledge of Andean art and values throughout today´s world.
We have chosen 32 textile symbols from many that are produced in the Andes, and which express wisdom. These symbols, chosen from a wide range of “pallays” from several communities, during research which began 1947, are part of the cultural legacy of Peru. The meditations that we offer are our vision of the traditional interpretations of these symbols, which vary from one community to the next and even among individuals because our living culture remains dynamic and ever-changing.
The “Pallay Wisdom Cards” offer us all an opportunity for personal reflection.
